Jatiya Party chairman HM Ershad in an organisational order on Friday removed his younger brother GM Quader from the party’s co-chairman post.
However, GM Quader will remain as a member of the party’s presidium body.“Jatiya Party Parliamentary Party (JPPP) will decide his continuation as the Deputy Leader of the Opposition in Parliament,” Ershad said.
“Earlier, I declared that GM Quader would perform all the responsibilities of the party in my absence. I hoped that the party national council would elect him as chairman of the party.
But, now I am withdrawing the declaration,” the JP chairman said in a letter issued on Friday.
HM Ershad, the Leader of the Opposition in Parliament, said, “GM Quader had failed to run the organisation by creating division in the party.”
